Wendover wins Best Kept Village 2018

  |  Published: Sep 15th 2018

On Saturday 15 September 2018 Wendover was visited by Buckinghamshire County Council's Best Kept Village Team.

Wendover Parish Council decided to enter the competition this year because devolved budgets mean it is now responsible for things like grass cutting which had previously been done by a higher authority. It was a very close thing. The Lord Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire, Sir Henry Aubrey Fletcher, revealed that in Wendover's category of "Small Town", Marlow was beaten by one point. Wendover was particularly commended for the Churchyard and the War Memorial. Parish Council Chairman Tom Walsh thanked everyone who helped Wendover to win the award and encouraged them to continue their good work either as Council employees, residents or visitors.

There are seven categories in all and as Wendover had the highest overall score, we also won the sword of excellence.

Well done everyone.
